Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge -- Trick or Treat Me to some Candy Corn!! :)

Happy Sunday, friends!! :)  I hope this day finds you enjoying moments with family and friends... 

It's time again for one of my favorite challenge days!!  It's Simply Sunday Challenge Day over at Getting Cricky!!  This week, we were asked to create some "FALL TREATS" -- What do YOU think of when you think of "Fall Treats"???  Is it a gift card holder (to get treats for fall scrapbooking?), or a layout (with pictures of your little sweet treats jumping in leaves?), or maybe a 3D project to hold candy (that you can only find in the fall season)?  Well, whatever this challenge makes ya think of...  We want to see you use your CREATIVITY and show us your interpretation of the challenge!! :)

For this challenge, many of my Design Team Sisters will be featuring Kristal's NEWEST stamp sets -- I chose to use the new "Fall-O-Ween" for my treat bags (check out all the newest stamps at K Andrew Designs)...  This great Mix-N-Match set is an "extra-large" stamp set filled with all kinds of fun phrases!!  :)
I found this candy corn at my local grocery store that looks black, orange, and white (instead of yellow, orange, and white) and is called "Indian Corn"...  Since the college colors for my kiddos are black, orange, and white, I thought these would make perfect little treats for them -- So I bought a big bag and set to creating some treat bags for them...
To stamp the sentiment, I placed the "Trick or" stamp on the block normally; but when I added the "TREAT" stamp, I rounded it on the block (this is a great feature of these high-quality stamps -- they are so easy to twist or round a little to fit your needs!!)...  I stamped the sentiment with Stampin' Up!'s Only Orange ink on a circle cut from white cardstock and added that to a circle cut from orange cardstock.  I distressed the edges of the circle first with my distressing tool and then with SU!'s Chocolate Chip ink.  Two of my handmade stick pins, some handmade flower embellishments, a strip of 1" black grosgrain ribbon, and a little bow were added to the topper (embossed with my Cuttlebug "Checkerboard" extra-large folder) before I attached the topper to the plastic baggie...
And there ya have it!!  Fall-themed candy in a treat bag sure to be a hit with the kiddos....  Now that I've shown you my take on the challenge, I hope you'll hop on over to see what all of my Design Team Sisters made for inspiration...  Then, I hope you'll enter this week's "Fall Treats" Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky...  We can't WAIT to see what you create!!

Dont' forget to stop by and see Kristal's NEWEST Stamps available HERE!! 

Until next time,
